NY Firearms Buyback Nets Broken BB Guns

A New York gun buyback scheme promoted by Attorney General Eric Schneiderman turned into a complete flop after it was protested by Second Amendment activists and netted just 30 firearms in total, some of which were broken BB guns.

Despite Schneiderman best efforts to push the initiative, the program, which offered pre-paid credit cards in return for unwanted or unlicensed firearms with no questions asked, was upstaged by gun advocates.

Residents were told they could turn in their firearms, which would then be destroyed, at VFW Post 478 in Binghamton on Saturday.

However, Second Amendment activists were on scene to inform residents that they could instead sell their guns to a licensed FFL dealer in return for fair value cash and that the weapons would remain in circulation.
